The last addition to the team, Peru Nolaskoain, was presented to the public. He explained why he signed for Depor and left the doubt if he will play as a centre-back or as a centre midfielder.

Peru Nolaskoain was presented after Wednesday’s training; he explained why the negotiations for his arrival lasted so long, "I have talked with Carmelo for almost two months, I have felt loved from the first moment, it is an exciting project to return the club where it belongs and together we can do it."

He denied that he was negotiating with Real Zaragoza as it was speculated by the media, “There was too much talk in the press that I talked to Zaragoza. It was all about social networks. I didn't say anything because I thought it wouldn’t help, but from the moment Depor entered, I wanted to come here and told them I was going with them.”

A lot has been said about the position in which he will perform with Anquela, and the player said that he ready to perform either as a centre-back or as a centre midfielder, “It's true that, last year, I played as centre-back with Athletic. It was a new position, because I have always played at midfield. Nor I can say where I feel more comfortable, but I think I can perform well in both positions and that’s positive.”

Nolaskoain also clarified that he is fit to play after making the full pre-season with Athletic Club, “I am available now. I've done the pre-season and hopefully I can play on Sunday. It’s very important to start winning. We will have to work hard, because it seems that playing at home is easier and it isn’t like that. A tough opponent is coming and I hope people will push us a lot at the Riazor.”
